Bradley Cooper pops up in teaser for Limitless TV show

A new teaser has appeared online for CBS's Limitless TV show, a small-screen take on Neil Burger's 2011 film of the same name. And eye-catchingly, this first glimpse features an appearance from returning star Bradley Cooper…

The film saw Cooper's character Eddie Mora become a Senator, having benefited from the intelligence-enhancing drug, NZT, and the new series will see him return in his new capacity as a government official. The main thrust of the show will follow a new character, Brian Finch, who also begins taking NZT and finds his own abilities advancing accordingly.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Intriguingly, there seems to be a strong police procedural element to the new series, which is something of a departure from its parent film. That said, from the looks of this first footage, the action will be just as OTT.

Co-starring Jake McDorman and Jennifer Carpenter, Limitless will make its bow on CBS this fall, airing every Tuesday evening.
